Mekuria Merga is one of several washing stations with this name.

Washing stations are named after their owner, Mekuria Merga, a highly respected coffee professional with 23 years experience in the industry. He is renowned for his high quality washing stations that have been supplying to several exporters over the last ten years.

This particular washing station is located in the woreda of Gedeb and buys cherries from around 500 farmers.

Mekuria Merga decided to establish his own export company “Wete Ambela” in 2018 to export coffees from his washing stations, which are renowned for their high quality coffees.

Wete Ambela produces about six containers a year, around half of these are washed coffees. The company employs about 65 people in its washing stations and export office.

Coffee cherries are harvested by family members, then hand-sorted to remove unripe and overripe cherries before they are delivered to the washing station for processing. The healthy cherries will be moved to the drying beds and the drying can take up to 20 days at these altitudes.

Underripe and defective cherries will be sorted out by hand during the first days.

The cherries are dried in a relatively thin layer at about 3-4 cm the first days. They will build up the layers to 6-10 cm after a few days. The coffees are moved frequently and they will be covered during the hottest hours of the day to protect the cherries from intense sunlight, then again at night to protect against humidity. This will also help improve quality as the coffee is rested and the drying is more homogeneous.
